  • I can definitely recommend a website that really helped me with my essay. I found out it was due the day before I had to submit it. Went into full-on panic mode. Worst experience of my senior year by far. It’s called HelpWriting.net. The quality of the writing is passable but the completion rate is super quick. You get to pick your own writer to do your stuff and that’s also a big bonus.

Pneumonia

  1. 1. PNEUMONIAPNEUMONIA Prepared by ASWATHI C K 3rd YEAR BAMS
  2. 2. What is pneumonia?  Pneumonia  Infection of the lungs.  Alveoli fill with fluid and pus, making breathing more difficult.  Pneumococcal pneumonia  Caused by bacteria called pneumococcus (Streptococcus pneumoniae).  Can also be caused by other bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites.
  3. 3. EPIDEMOLOGICAL DETERMINANTS • AGENT FACTOR Bacteria : Most common Streptococcus pneumoniae Streptococcus pyogenes Legionella pneumophila Klebsiella pneumoniae Virus : Respiratory syncycial virus Influenza A,B Parainfluenza 1-3 Adenoviruses Other agents Clamydia type B Coxiella burntti Mycoplasma pneumoniae
  4. 4. AGENT...... • There are more than 100 strains of infectious agents identified, only a few are responsible for the majority of the cases • Mixed infections with both viruses and bacteria may occur in up to 45% of infections in children • agent may not be isolated in approximately half of cases despite careful testing
  5. 5. STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE • Gram-positive, alpha-hemolytic, facultative anaerobic bacteria • resides asymptomatically in the nasopharynx of healthy carriers
  6. 6. Reservoir • Exclusively a human pathogen; no animal or environmental reservoir Carrier • Carried in the nasopharynx of 40-70% of humans without symptoms. Portal of entry • Respiratory tract Infecting body parts • respiratory tract, sinuses, and nasal cavity
  7. 7. HOST FACTOR • Case fatality rates are higher in young infants & malnourished children • Rate more in children <5yrs & adults older than 75yrs • In developing countries,rate is highest due to malnutrition & low birth weight • In developed countries RI are less fatal
  8. 8. RISK FACTORS Developing countries : overcrowded dwellings, poor nutrition low birth weight, intense indoor smoke pollution Developed countries : school going children to - household  People with some medical conditions are at higher risk for pneumonia, including: heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, etc.  Smoking also increases risk of developing pneumonia.
  9. 9. ENVIRONEMENT • More common in winter & early spring • Overcrowding • Diminished host resistance
  10. 10. MODE OF TRANSMISSION Direct transmission(person to person) Normally by the airborne route(droplets)- sneezing,coughing..... INCUBATION PERIOD 1-4 Weeks
  11. 11.  Most cases of pneumonia are spread person-to-person by coughing out of tiny droplets.  Some pathogens can live in nose and throat without causing disease.  But when inhaled into lungs, they can cause pneumonia.  While many people are exposed to pneumococcus, usually only those with underlying health issues develop pneumonia.
  12. 12. PATHOGENESIS • bacteria invade the spaces between cells and between alveol • macrophages and neutrophils attempt to inactivate • neutrophils cytokines activate immune system fever, chills, and fatigue • neutrophils, bacteria, and fluid from surrounding blood vessels fill the alveoli, resulting in the consolidation
  13. 13. TYPES OF PNEUMONIA Pneumonia affects your lungs in two Ways . According to areas involved :  Lobar pneumonia : affects a section (lobe) of a lung.  Bronchial pneumonia (Bronchopneumonia) : affects patches throughout both lungs.
  14. 14. LOBAR PNEUMONIA
  15. 15. BRONCHOPNEUMONIA (Bronchitis and Pneumonia occur together)
  16. 16. CLINICAL MANIFESTATIONS
  17. 17. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS  High fever, Shaking Chills  Shortness of breath (Dyspnoea)  Increased breathing rate  Chest pain when you breathe deeply or cough  Dusky or purplish skin colour (cyanosis) from poorly oxygenated blood  Fatigue and muscle aches  Nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea  Cough, particularly cough productive of sputum
  18. 18. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS  Streptococcus pneumoniae: Rust-colored sputum Pseudomonas, Haemophilus, and pneumococcal species: May produce green sputum Klebsiella species pneumonia: Red currant-jelly sputum Anaerobic infections: Often produce foul-smelling or bad- tasting sputum Newborns and infants may not show any sign of the infection. Or they may vomit, have a fever and cough, appear restless or tired and without energy, or have difficulty breathing and eating. Older people who have pneumonia sometimes have sudden changes in mental awareness.
  19. 19. COMPLICATIONS  Bacteria in the bloodstream (bacteremia)  Lung abscess.  Build up of fluid in the space between the lung and chest wall (pleural effusion).  Difficulty breathing.  Shock and respiratory failure  Septic arthritis  Endocarditis
  20. 20. DIAGNOSIS • History taking and clinical assessment • Physical examination • X-ray findings of lobar consolidation • Leukocytosis • Bacteriological confirmation Sputam-gram staining & culture Blood culture
  21. 21.  PHYSICAL EXAMINATION • Count the breath in one minute • Look for chest indrawing • Look & listen for stridor • Look for wheeze • See if the child is abnormally sleepy or difficult to wake • Feel for fever • check for severe malnutrition • Look for cyanosis
  22. 22. CONTROL • Improving the primary medical care services • Developing better methods for early detection,treatment & where possible prevention • Education of mother
  23. 23. PREVENTION • Better nutrition • Reduction of smoke pollution • Better MCH care • Immunization Measles vaccine Hib vaccine Pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine
  24. 24. • Measles: Dose : 0.5 ml age : 9th month • Hib vaccine: Dose : combined with DPT & polio myelitis Age : 6,10,14th week Booster dose:12-18 months • Pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine a.PPV23 b.PCV
  25. 25. PPV23(Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine) • protects against 23 types of pneumococcus • Children under 2 yrs of age and immuno -compromised individuals does not respond • Recommended for selected groups - who have undergone splenectomy/sickle cell disease, chronic disease of heart,lung,liver,.....DM, alcoholism,generalized malignancies,organ transplant,....
  26. 26. • Dose : 0.5ml(25microgrms of purified capsular polysaccharide from each 23 serotypes) • Site : intra-muscular ,deltoid or as subcutaneous dose Protective capsular type specific antibodies develope by the 3rd week following vaccination minor adverse effects such as transient redness & pain at the site of injection occur in 30-50% cases
  27. 27. PCV(Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine) • 2conjugate vaccines : PCV10 & PCV13 • 2 schedules 3 primary doses(3p+0) 2primarydoses+1booster (2p+1) • (3p+0) : from 6 weeks of age interval : 4-8 weeks given at 6,10,14 weeks or 2,4,6 months • (2p+1) : 2 primary doses;as early as 6 weeks of age in infant-interval-8weeks

  29. 29. TREATMENT • COTRIMOXAZOLE • IM injection of benzyl pencillin,ampicillin or chloramphenicol • very severe : provision of oxygen therapy IM injection of chloramphenicol IM of Cloxacillin & Gentamycin
